I live on my laptop. Much of my work is on my laptop. And tonight my laptop died, and I am busy trying to deal with it.
It won't even power on, even briefly, so I think it's done for. I got the bottom panel off, removed the hard drive, and pried it out of its cheap sled so that I could insert into an enclosure. Fortunately the drive seems to be fine and I am copying my files onto our kid's laptop. I do have a backup from a week ago but this way I don't lose a week's worth of work.
Tomorrow I'm going to need to go shopping for a new laptop. I have hard deadlines at work next week so this is really awful timing.
So... I have not gone looking for comfort food to stuff myself with. Am sorely tempted, though!
